1965 Studebaker Daytona 2 Door Sports Sedan

This is a very late model Studebaker Daytona Sport Sedan, one of only 1626 built, and therefore likely one of very few still remaining today. This car was purchased on 13/07/2012, and now resides in the Southern Highlands, NSW, Australia.

The production date of this Studebaker was 1 May 1965, and as a late model it benefited from the Cheverolet 283ci V8 engine. The car was originally an American vehicle from the Bell's Studebaker Museum, located in Washington. The car was then imported by the current owner to Australia. The paint on the car is original, with only a few areas receiving touch ups following rust repairs. This car has now been converted to right hand drive using Australian Studebaker components, and is in good running order.

Included in this profile are pictures of the Studebaker as it left the US on a truck, before being shipped to Aus. The pictures with the car in the shed, guards stripped, are in Australia, where it is undergoing minor rust repairs and RHD conversion.
